This playlist was inspired with the happenings way back in 2016.
That year, I spent this year as a ghost, living in isolation of nothingness and confusion. From being AWOL in school, up to taking a break from all my social media accounts, some of my friends assumed that I’m dying or being abducted.
As I realized that my life’s crumbling, I tried to fix it up, looking for new stuff to work on while I’m in the process of my school re-admission. I started working in my uncle’s office/depot, where I spent the day assisting his clients, playing fruit ninja, and contemplating my past decisions. Three months later, my uncle had to move his office in a farther location, so I left the job.
This year had been awful to me. Yet despite of all the shitty happenings that came along, these three realizations somehow made it all worth it.

Second, the real world sucks and it compares nothing to college. So hellish that I wished I didn’t took my meltdown seriously and continued school.
Lastly, music is the cure for everything. You may disappoint yourself, but music will never bring you down. Emotional agony? Yep it helps. Physical pain? Still works. I even spent an hour listening to Safia while having a horrible hungover, and it kicked my headache instantly.
That’s why I’m thanking these awesome songs that kept my will and made me cry on this fateful year of 2016, that I would also share to you right now:
“He’s gonna tell you you’re the one
So you better run
Yes he’s slick, never let him have his fun”
Reese Lansangan’s Slick is the most played song in my Spotify account, as I’ve constantly listened to this track ever since Arigato Internet was released. Aside from being my faves in the album, this song accurately describes the guy I like.
Listen to this: After making out with that player, to keep you on track with reality. You could also sing this for a bar’s open mic, as a warning to all the naive girls that might fall for the fuckboys they would meet that night. Continue reading
